546 Possible Causes for Hypermetabolism

  • Third Trimester Pregnancy

    Abstract We determined unconjugated and total estriol concentrations in serum during the third trimester in 34 normal gestations. Data were obtained weekly for 13 women for as long as nine weeks; 21 others were studied daily for up to 15 days. No correlation between birth weight and either estriol fraction was[…][]

  • Graves Disease

    Growth in height may be enhanced by hypermetabolism, and bone age may be advanced. [3] Puberty may be affected.[] The hypermetabolic state is characterized by fast pulse/heartbeat, palpitations, profuse sweating, high blood pressure, irritability, fatigue, weight loss, heat intolerance[] Hypermetabolism usually leads to weight loss with increased appetite. Heat intolerance is often subtle. Muscle wasting is present, with decreased muscle strength.[]

  • Thyrotoxicosis Factitia

    Complications like cardiac arrhythmias, hypermetabolism, hyperpyrexia, thyroid storm and myocardial infarction have been reported in TF.[] The signs and symptoms of thyroid hormone exposure to peripheral tissues reflect a hypermetabolic state.[] Various psychiatric symptoms such as anxiety, emotional lability, insomnia, agitation, mania, and depression are also concurrent with hypermetabolic symptoms.[]

  • Multiple Myeloma

    PET/CT findings presented as a pattern of skeletal "superscan," including diffuse and prominent hypermetabolism throughout the axial and proximal appendicular skeleton, which[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    To our knowledge, this is the first case reported in the literature presenting with simultaneous hypermetabolic lesions in the prostate and lung.[]

  • Leukemia

    Featured Content Editorial 14 December 2018 Announcement We would like to thank all those listed here for taking the time to review for Leukemia over the past year. Your generosity is much appreciated and we hope your association with the journal continues in the future! Announcement Join the Leukemia Twitter[…][]

  • Hodgkin's Disease

    […] cycles of chemotherapy. 18F Fluro -de-oxy Glucose (FDG) PET / CT in this case helped in establishing a primary hepatic lymphoma by demonstrating the absence of pathologically hypermetabolic[] GA lesions showed hypermetabolic images on positron emission tomography, an interesting finding of unknown significance.[] Hypermetabolic tumor regions were segmented semiautomatically and the metabolic tumor volume (MTV), mean standardized uptake value (SUV mean), maximum SUV (SUV max) and integrated[]

  • Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

    Initial symptoms are often nonspecific and due to anaemia or hypermetabolism. Weakness, weight loss and fatigue are common.[] Some patients with CML have low-grade fever and excessive sweating related to hypermetabolism.[] The enlarged spleen may also be associated with a hypermetabolic state, fever, weight loss, and chronic fatigue.[]

  • Salicylate Poisoning

    The end-result is a hypermetabolic state, with increased O2 consumption, increased CO2 production, accelerated glycolytic and lipolytic pathways, and hyperpyrexia.[]

  • Polycythemia Vera

    Hypermetabolism can cause low-grade fevers and weight loss and suggests progression to secondary myelofibrosis, which is clinically indistinguishable from primary myelofibrosis[] Low-grade fevers and weight loss caused by hypermetabolism.[]
